Question about Echo Garden
I have an Echo trimmer that is not feeding line.
Sadly, they do wear out..... but sometimes they're just stuck. The line can refuse to feed if the line is caught on itself in the spool winding, or if the head is bad. Try this: remove the spool and clean it pretty good. Check that the line isn't caught on itself in the spool. Sometimes it just locks itself in between wraps, and you have to pull it out of the groove to get it to continue to feed. Give the inside of the spool a liberal dose of graphite powder. Put the spool back on with line. Bump it against the ground as much as you feel necessary to further distribute the graphite. Now, push the spool in as if to feed line, and pull on the line. It should feed a bit and stop. If it does, you're good to go. If not, replace the spool.
Best regards. Hope this was helpful to you, --W/D-- Please feel free to rate this solution! Thanx!
